Custom MMIC has been awarded its second Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II contract from the United States Army to develop millimeter-wave, high linearity, high power amplifiers on Gallium Nitride (GaN) for satellite communication systems (SATCOM).

“We are excited to be working with the US Army to develop amplifiers on the cutting edge technology of millimeter-wave GaN,” said Paul Blount, President and CEO of CMDS. “In addition to developing these amplifiers for the US Army, we will also use this award to develop other RF front-end products including high linearity mixers, switches, and phase shifters. This award will enable us to complement our line of high efficiency low noise amplifiers with high efficiency power amplifiers, thus enabling military and commercial markets to reduce their total cost of ownership of SATCOM systems.”

CMDS is a fabless design company engaged in the development of high frequency monolithic microwave integrated circuits. With over 30 years of design experience, CMDS has been a leader in developing circuits for cellular, WLAN, VSAT, point-to-point radios, and phased array radar systems.
